How the ‘Little Horn’ Uprooted the 3 Arian ‘Horns’

    I was considering the horns [the 10 horns in verse 7], and there was another little horn, a little one, coming up among them before whom three for the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this [little] horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.” Daniel 7: 8, N.K.J.V.

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

    “Out of the ruins of political Rome, arose the great moral Empire in the ‘giant form’ of the Roman Church.” – A.C. Flick, “The Rise of the Medieval Church,” 1900, p. 150.

Horns in Bible prophecy is symbolic of “kingdoms,” even as the “ten kings” (v. 24) and “four kings” of v. 17 represent kingdoms ( v. 3) and the “the four horns” of the goat are “four kingdoms”(ch. 8: 22). Though “little” or “small” at the outset, this little horn is later described as “more stout than his fellows” (KJV)—the continuation of the Roman element, the Roman power in the Church of Rome.

Truth, i. e., “the whole truth and nothing but the truth—its current counterfeit balderdash bandied around as “alternative facts” — is indeed “stranger” and more boring “than fiction.” That’s the inevitable result when one allows the minds to the mind to explore, Eve-like, the technology-enhanced landscape of fiction, fantasies, and drama instead of God’s pure truths.

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK:
If you know the enemy, and you know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” – Sun Tzu, Chinese military strategist
From Facts of Faith by Christian Edwardson (Revised), chapter: The Prophetic History of the World, pp. 34-38. Southern Publishing Asso. Nashville 8 TN, U.S.A., 1943:  
     THE PROPHECIES of the Bible are not difficult to understand—if we follow the rules laid down in Scripture for interpreting prophecy. These rules are few in number, and they are not complicated. When used in connection with prophetic symbols, ‘sea,’ or ‘waters’ stand for ‘multitudes of people’ (Rev. 17: 15; Isa. 8: 7; 17: 12; Jer. 6: 23); ‘wind’ stands for ‘war’ (Jer. 4: 12, 13; 25: 31, 32); ‘beasts’ stands for ‘kingdoms’ (Dan. 7: 23); and ‘days’ for ‘years [of 360 days] (Eze.4: 6).  Read more

Unbroken Apostolic Succession of the Papacy?

Unbroken Apostolic Succession of the Papacy?  

According to Webster’s Student Edition Dictionary (1976), papacy includes four things: “1. the position or authority of the pope 2. the period during which the pope rules  3. the line of succession of popes 4. the government of the Roman Catholic Church, headed by the pope.” It is important to remember these 4-point definition whenever referring to the papacy. Moreover, it is essential to remember that not one single or any particular pope is the papacy or the beast, even the president is the presidency or a senator the senate itself, etc. This would expose many false interpretations. For instance, while he was still alive, it was claimed that Pope John Paul (the first Polish pope) was the “last pope,” who was allegedly going to usher in the “New World Order” for the Church of Rome, with Gorbachev for Russia, and George Bush Sr. for America!  Read more

Heathenism Adopted by the Church during Thyatira Stage

Heathenism Adopted by the Church during Thyatira Stage

    “IN THE SIXTH CENTURY the papacy had become firmly established. Its seat of power was fixed in the imperial city, and the bishop of Rome was declared to be the head over the entire church. Paganism had given place to the papacy.  The dragon had given to the beast ‘his powerhis seat, and great authority.’ Rev. 13: 2. (see Appendix). And now began the 1260 years of papal oppression foretold in the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation (Dan. 7: 15; Rev. 13: 5-7).  Christians were forced either to yield their integrity and accept the papal ceremonies and worship, or to wear away their lives in dungeons or suffer death by the rack, the fagot, or the headsman’s axe. Now were fulfilled words of Jesus: ‘Ye shall be betrayed both by parents and brethren and kinsfolk and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake’ (Luke 21: 16, 17).
